What a great idea! Thank you for including my book, The Humblebee Hunter in your display.

Several years ago I wrote a short biography for young readers entitled Who Was Charles Darwin? But I still felt there was little about Darwin as a father and a lifelong naturalist that was accessible to younger children. So, while Humblebee is historical fiction, it is based on the family's life at Down House, where Darwin shared with his children his lifelong curiousity about the world. Also I hope the small experiment included in the book will inspire some readers to do their own observations of bees!
